Mandeville, LA – An Original Show written and produced by Mike Church.
The Veritas Radio Network Presents:
THE PEARCING TRUTH- Based upon the best-selling work LITERARY CONVERTS by Joseph Pearce.
Featuring Joseph Pearce and hosted by Mike Church – EPISODE 7, The Literary Curmudgeon.
On this Pearcing Truth show & classroom, we’ll review the “historia” of yet another “convert” who came to the faith at least partially because of the writings of G.K. Chesterton.
- At one point in our mystery Convert’s college life he wrote that he was “full of pagan gloom and thoughts of suicide.”
- He also deployed a “muscular agnosticism to… debate and if possible, destroy, the claims of Christianity.” Ultimately though, the final Literary Authority with the aid of Father D’arcy, received our mystery man into the Catholic Church on 29 September, 1930 at the Church of The Immaculate Conception on Farm Street, Mayfair London.
- He would go on to write one of the most beloved novels of the 20th century along with biographies of Saint Edmund Campion and Saint Helen, the mother of Constantine.
Who is this arrogant, easily agitated, Literary Curmudgeon!? Find out by listening to EPISODE 7 – The Literary Curmudgeon.
